Donskoi monastery  

Donskoi Monastery, Frieze showing St Sergius Radonezh blessing Dmitri Donskoi while preparing for the campaign to Kulikovo Battle. The frieze was placed in the back yard of the monastery during Stalinist times. Fortunately it was not destroyed. Like the Danilov monastery this one is also across the Moscow river and defends half of the area between the two river bends.
